Governance

FSI's research on the origins, character and consequences of government institutions spans continents and academic disciplines. The institute’s senior fellows and their colleagues across Stanford examine the principles of public administration and implementation. Their work focuses on how maternal health care is delivered in rural China, how public action can create wealth and eliminate poverty, and why U.S. immigration reform keeps stalling. 

FSI’s work includes comparative studies of how institutions help resolve policy and societal issues. Scholars aim to clearly define and make sense of the rule of law, examining how it is invoked and applied around the world. 

FSI researchers also investigate government services – trying to understand and measure how they work, whom they serve and how good they are. They assess energy services aimed at helping the poorest people around the world and explore public opinion on torture policies. The Children in Crisis project addresses how child health interventions interact with political reform. Specific research on governance, organizations and security capitalizes on FSI's longstanding interests and looks at how governance and organizational issues affect a nation’s ability to address security and international cooperation.

IET/CORE电脑协助教学奖学金项目:奖学金“提前承诺”能否改变一切?

在中国,上大学的花费总额每年需10000-12000元不等。大学这四年的开销,相当于一般贫困线家庭年收入的60倍。尽管相较5年前,现在大学生可以获得的资助和奖学金机会越来越多,然而那些真正需要资助的学生并没有获得这些资助和奖学金。另一方面,即使存在一些针对农村贫困学生的资助项目,但实际上贫困学生对资助项目可获得性知之甚少,导致这些奖学金项目没有发挥其真正的作用。
